Buyer re: Anatomy Unit, Human Body Systems and Health Topics Unit
Hi Ryan,

It looks like this is a CD that comes in the mail. Is there any way you could send the beginning unit as a digital file. I downloaded the skeletal system, but would like to run through at least some of the beginning unit first?
Either way I'm ordering the CD -- but it would help a lot if I could download the first unit tonight to lay out my plans.

Thanks Amy

Dear Amy,

I'll send the entire unit right now as a digital download to your email. TpT has required me to send cd's rather than digital downloads. They are working on a policy change but weren't thrilled when they found out I was sending things (Hardgoods) digitally instead of through the mail. Apparently that's not allowed in favor of waiting a week for a cd (most devices don't even have cd drives anymore. It will arrive shortly for download. Thank you for your patience.

Sincerely,
Ryan Murphy at TpT

PS-Please let me know if you still want a cd. Thank you.

Dear Susan P,

Thanks for contacting me. I run the Matter, Energy, and the Envs. Unit in the late fall of the 8th grade year. The energy transfer lesson is in Part III in forms of energy. I post the standards at the beginning mostly for teachers but do address to the students that with some hard work we'll have an understanding of the following topics. If you email me at ryemurf@gmail.com I can send you the entire unit to look over / examine the standards included. I need your email as I can't send to your TpT username.

Other 8th grade units are the Laws of Motion Unit, Atoms and Periodic Table, Cellular Biology, DNA and Genetics. Human Body and Taxonomy are also challenging enough for 8th graders. The entire unit is addressed for 8th graders. Thank you for your question. I hope was this helpful.

Thanks again,
Sincerely,
Ryan Murphy

Update:

Dear Lindsay,

Thanks again. I checked the post and it seems to be okay. I'm worried that you went straight to Part B and hate the lesson. Part B starts off with brain games, observation skills, moves into encoding, learning, Parts of the brain, senses, and ends with lobes of the brain. It is really a lot of fun and I hope you and your students will enjoy it. Part A is more standard / not as active. I'd still like to send you the entire unit. Best wishes.

I am not a formal teacher; I homeschool my daughter. I bought the Science Murf and thought that I bought the whole ball of wax. I wasn't aware that in addition to this purchase, I need to buy the actual slides, curriculum and worksheets for each section. If I am not "reading" this correctly, please let me know what I'm missing. I have found some of the materials required for each section that are free, but most of them are an additional cost. I really hope that I'm just missing something...

Dear Kendra French,

Thank you for contacting me. You shouldn't have to purchase anything else. The curriculum purchase will contain an enormous amount of material and will not require any additional purchases. I'll check my sales this afternoon after school and send the curriculum download link to your email. There was a short period during the fall when I accidentally uploaded a preview folder in I believe the Geology Topics Unit of the curriculum for a few days. I wonder if you purchased during that time. The issue has been corrected. I can also mail you a flash drive. Thank you again for your purchase and patience and please email me at ryemurf@gmail.com as I am having difficulty finding your email address as TpT usernames and real names don't always match.

I can't send the download link to a TpT username and require an email address. Thank you again

Dear Mrs S.

Thanks for contacting me. The company I use is called PayLoadz.com. It allows you to email large digital files. It's set up for websites so when people buy a digital good PayLoadz.com takes a small piece through a check out option. The nice thing is that they allow you to just manually send material. When I get a sale on TpT for a shipped good I get the buyers email. I can then send the curriculum for download. The cons in the process are that some schools will block out PayLoadz.com (Some of the other members on PayLoadz.com sell some strange digital goods. I think I'm the only one in education). The buyer then gets a bit angry when it doesn't arrive. There isn't a way to tell if is blocked. Yahoo, gmail, etc all work fine. Just .k12 sometimes get blocked, or the link goes into a junk mail folder. If the email address is invalid you get a message that the file wasn't sent.

I usually send the buyer a message with the instructions with my gmail account before I send the link. The other con (kinda) is that the link for download is only active for I believe 24 hours after being sent. This has caused some problems mostly because buyers don't read instructions.

Overall, the company is solid, and the uploader is very strong. My entire curriculum is 5.6 GB and easily downloaded if the buyer has a high speed connections. Buyers with dial up, or terrible satellite will become frustrated when the download time is 12 hours. For this reason, I still offer the flashdrive mailed (free shipping) just to keep them happy and avoid bad feedback. I imagine 2GB won't run into as many issues but you will still get a few people with dinosaur computers struggling with the download.

If you send me your email I could send you a unit so you can test out the process / see if it's something that will help you. My email is ryemurf@gmail.com

If you have any more questions please feel free to contact me. I think going digitally has some headaches but the process is fast and most of the time works well. Best wishes.

Sincerely,
Ryan Murphy

Dear MommaAmy05,

Thank you for your interest. I can send you a download or mail you a hard copy if needed. Generally, the download works well and most people can download without problems. If you have a really slow internet connection the download can be difficult. In these cases the buyer just contacts me and I mail out a few cd's or a flashdrive. I can send you a unit in the earth science curriculum if you are concerned / want to try the download. I would need your email address as I can't deliver the unit electronically to a TpT Username. Thank you again and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Dear Linda Werts,

Thanks for contacting me. This is a tricky question as I have feedback that's been good for upper HS. I believe I have it posted 7-10. I run this unit in the 7th/8th grade and it's difficult mostly because it is large in size and not the content. If you email me at ryemurf@gmail.com I can send you the entire unit to look over. If it's something you think would be useful please let me know or visit checkout after the fact. If it's too easy then no worries. I know the students will like it because it is a fun unit. If it's an honor type 11th and 12th it will be a bit easy I imagine. I'd love to send it to you but I do need your email as I can't email the unit to your TpT username. Thanks again.

Hi Ryan, just bought the Air pollution, Atmosphere and Skin Cancer unit. I was getting ready to implement it when I realized that my zip file did not contain the videos! Other sellers have shared the files with me via Google docs. (david.ghelfi@slane.k12.or.us) when dealing with big files such as video. Please let me know what I can do! Thanks and I am looking forward to starting this unit!

Dear David Ghelfi,

Things on TpT are a bit strange today as emails are arriving hours late. I got your email earlier and sent you the entire weather and climate unit. The videos are links since I don't own the rights to them. If you have an internet connection in class they should play if you school doesn't block out youtube. You can also download them at home in advance. The air pollution portion of the unit doesn't have a high number of video links but the rest of the unit has several. Thank you again and please feel free to contact me with additional questions.

Hello,

The majority downloaded with not trouble, but a few files came up with an "Error" message and would not download (for example, Part II Skeletal systems HW, Part IX excretory Systems HW and several others did not download) Can you please advise me? Should I try the download again?

Dear Melissa Vogel,

Thanks again for your purchase. Let me send you the Human Body Unit again. Perhaps a problem occurred where the download was broken for a bit which may cause the error. The large homework bundle is all of the contents of that folder in one. I just made the HW by folder to make it easier if a teacher didn't want to run all of the body systems. If you still encounter problems please let me know. The unit will arrive shortly from a sciencepowerpoint.com. Thank you for your patience.

Hi, Ryan!
In February of 2013 I purchased Human Body System and Health Topics Unit (6600+ slides). Is this an updated version of that product since it has so many more slides included?

My students loved the different parts that I included in my lecture that were from your presentation/unit. I'd like to update for this year, if this is the newer product?

Also... is the Virus, Bacteria, Parasites, Diseases Unit included in this unit, too? Or should I purchase that one separately?

Dear Marcie,

Thanks again. I've updated the unit with some extras. Mostly some new links and bonus folders etc and I changed the cover slides. I believe the slide count won't be that much different. I never changed the title on the post as I had it linked places. I'll upload this newer version now and sent the unit along later tonight. I'll also send you my infectious diseases unit. Nobody buys it although it is a nice unit. Part I is viruses and diseases Intro and Part II is bacteria. Part III, and IV have some overlap with the immune system portion of the human body unit. I'll send that unit right now. It will arrive from a sciencepowerpoint.com. Thanks again.

I am a first year Science teacher who has a degree in Math/Language Arts. I currently coach three sports and would love to have the free time that this creates! I really like this curriculum and am thinking about purchasing the whole package. I have a few questions:
1. Is this aligned to the NC Essential Standards? I see that you have aligned it to the NGSS, is this like the Common Core for Science? Is that something other states are adopting?
2. Do you offer any sort of discount/payment plan? I am real interested in starting things as soon as possible (we start a Geology Unit on Monday when we get back from Thanksgiving break) but with Christmas, I do not have the extra income to pay for the whole curriculum at this time. We have already covered Hydro-cycle and Ecology and really wish that I had this before we covered those.
I look forward to hearing back from you.

Dear David Caccavaro,

Thank you for your interest. 1.) I'm not that familiar with the NC Essential Standards but I think the curriculum will have most everything you need. I describe the NGSS standards (Like the new common core standards but for science) - I don't really like them very much but have included where they are covered. I also describe some general standards for each unit. I'll send you the Geology Topics Unit and attach my curriculum guide that goes deep into the standards for each unit. Other states are adopting the NGSS (unfortunate as they are driven by special interest groups ---check out Achieve Inc sometime). Basically the curriculum covers most everything you can think of minus some geography material such as topographic mapping etc which are sometimes considered a science landform unit.

2.) I am having a huge cyber Monday sale tomorrow where the entire curriculum will be 20% of and then I think TpT takes another 28% of. I imagine the entire curriculum that is $64.99 will somewhere in the $40's. The sale runs this Monday and Tuesday.

3.) I'll send you my Geology Topics Unit to look at right now. In a few minutes you will receive an email from a sciencepowerpoint.com . At the bottom of this email you will find a link and download instructions from PayLoadz.com. This is a safe and secure company that specializes in sending extremely large digital files. I have broken the curriculum into two downloads rather than one large file to make the download process more successful. The teacher version is similar to the teachers but missing the answer keys, quizzes, games, owl, and surprises meant for the classroom. Please do not try and download them both at the same time as this may cause a break in the download which will require you to restart. Please download one and then the other. Just click the link to begin downloading. The links will expire in 48 hours so please try and download within that time period. You are welcome to contact me for additional links if needed. If downloading from a school computer it's possible that your schools security features are preventing the download. In this case, try downloading from a home computer or contact me so I can send the curriculum to your personal email address. Once you've downloaded the curriculum you will find a welcome letter / curriculum guide, materials list, and more to help answer any questions you may have. If you have any questions, do not receive the link, or encounter any problems with the download please let me know and I will act quickly to assist you. Thanks again and best wishes.

Sincerely,

Dear Pat Dolan,

Thanks for contacting me. I haven't password protected any files on purpose / don't have a password that I could give you. I imagine it was a problem in the unzipping. If you email me at ryemurf@gmail.com I can send you my weather and climate unit. I don't imagine the problem will occur here + you get a nice unit. Biomes is part 5. I'll check that post. Thank again for your patience.

Follow -Up: Dear Pat Dolan, I downloaded the lesson and didn't find any password protected issues. I uploaded again just to make sure. If you want to try again it may work. Please feel free to contact me for the entire weather unit as well. I just can't send the entire unit to your TpT username and need your email. Thanks again.

Ryan,

I was just wondering if this came with some sort of pacing guide so I can see how long each unit would take (approximately) and what should be taught when. I know it is curriculum for four years, so what is the pacing like for one year, say Earth Science?

Dear Josh,

Thanks for your interest and sorry for the delay. I try and avoid using TpT during the school day. If you email me at ryemurf@gmail.com I can send you an entire unit of study. You will also find a welcome guide that explains many curriculum possibilities.

You will find the curriculum guide and more at my free tour.... http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Science-Curriculum-Middle-School-4-years-50000-Slides-Tour-148474

I usually break Earth Science over two years mixed with some life science in the second year. If running just one year, I would recommend starting with the Weathering, Erosion, Soil Science, Ice Ages and Glaciers Unit. I would next move into Geology, followed by Astronomy, and finish with the Weather and Climate Unit. That will be a very busy year. You also have the Rivers, and Lakes Unit, and Water Molecule Unit for Earth Science to play with. I have 50 minute periods everyday and can't complete more than 5 units in a year if you run the entire unit. If I'm short of time you can skip parts of a unit / projects.

Thanks again for your interest. If interested in an entire unit of study (a couple of months of material) please email me and I'll send it to your email for download. Thanks again.

Sincerely,

Mr. Murphy, I am a homeschooling mom who has a 9th grader doing Biology. She is a very visual student and I am liking the look of your work. I think it would really help her. We use a company called Apologia that is very well written, but I would like something to go with it to help with the visual aspect. Her book is broken up with each chapter (module) broken into different kingdoms. I have tried to click on your complete Taxonomy unit, but it doesn't seem to show it. It may be something I am doing. The topics for her chapters are: The Study of Life, Kingdom Monera, Kingdom Protista, Kingdom Fungi, The Chemistry of Life, The Cell, Cellular Reproduction & DNA, Mendelian Genetics, Evolution: Part Scientific Theory & Part Unconfirmed Hypothesis, Ecology, Invertebrates, Phylum Arthropoda, Phylum Chordata, Kingdom Plantae, Reptiles, Birds & Mammals. If you have a group package you think will work with these chapter topics, that would be great. If you don't, you can recommend what you have individually. Thank you for your help! You can reply on here or email me at cskkmroberts@gmail.com.

Dear Sherri Roberts,

Thanks again for your interest. Perhaps the link to that unit has become broken. A while back I changed some of my titles to more search specific ones. That unit link to that unit may have been lost. I'll send the unit your way email for download and link to that unit on TpT below. This unit should cover some of the the topics in your questions. My cell unit, DNA and Genetics Unit, Evolution Unit will cover most of the rest. Scientific Method, and Ecology are on other units. The evolution unit the most, but also the DNA and Genetics unit aren't based in the christian faith. I only mention this as I believe Apologia is a creation based program and don't want to go against someones wishes if that applies. Thanks again. I'll send the download to your email. On the download you will find a PowerPoint that has the links and topics to all of my other units. Best wishes.

Hello,

I was wondering if you had a science or health package focused on the 4th and 5th grades. Some of your science stuff is great but I didn't want to purchase a package that was too high for my 5th graders. I am teaching my first year in Science and health and looking to build a database of worksheets and powerpoints. I am covering national health standards for grades 3-5. For Science I have 4 main units. Properties of Matter, Matter and Energy in Ecosystems, Earth Systems and their interactions, and Stars and The Solar System. If you had some recommendations I would be interested in purchasing a package. Your content looks very well thought out.

Beyoungyu,

Thanks for your interest. I have one unit about the human body and covers many aspects of health. They cut health at my school and I created the unit to fill in the parts that I could that fall in the anatomy / body. I run this unit in the 6th and 7th grade. It's difficult mostly for its size but will be a challenging for 4/5 and it would require editing. I still think with some editing it would be worth a look. My matter, energy and the environment unit is an 8th grade unit and difficult. My ecology units are great for 5th, and my Astronomy Unit / geology unit / weather unit are ones that I run in the 6th and could work. We could always try a discounted price and I can just send you the entire curriculum. This would allow you to get everything I have and then just use / edit the parts that you need. I imagine editing my materials would be easier than trying to start from scratch. Please let me know, I can also send a unit to your email so you can take a look. I'll send the human body unit and health topics unit now (6th/7th). Thanks again.

I've found that with the large bundled homework, review games, and built-in quizzes, as well as the many review opportunities placed throughout that I don't need a test to assess understanding. I imagine you could easily create one using the supplied notes. As NGSS grows, I may create a standards based test that addresses each standard within a unit. For now, I don't have a formal test for each unit. Thanks again, and if you have any other questions feel free to contact me.

Dear Rebecca Maurer,

Thanks again. I have a nice heat transfer lesson with lots of hands-on activities. I have also put this lesson into my geology topics unit when discussing the earths interior. Earth's resources are covered a bit in the minerals and rock parts but not in that much detail like you may find in a geography course. Mixtures and solutions are covered in a few places / different units. You will find parts of solutions and mixtures in my water unit and also in the matter, energy, and the environment unit. My ecology units (feeding levels, interactions, and abiotic factors) cover a lot about ecosystems. Biomes is in my weather unit.

I think the geology unit and the water unit may have what you are looking for. Solution and mixtures is just a small part of the water unit.

I'll provide the links to those unit if interested. If purchasing the curriculum you can cut and paste things together. Thanks again and best wishes.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Truly interactive and engaging PowerPoint creation complete with chronological homework / classwork, lesson notes, video links, and much more. 20 Full Units of Study, 50,000+ Slides 10+ Years in Public Education (Middle School + High School) Bachelors Degree in Biology and Environmental Studies. State Teaching Certificate, Masters Degree in Educational Leadership, Outdoor Educator, Coach, Ski-Instructor, Guide, Parent, Outdoor Enthusiast, Lived in East Africa, Great Life Experiences, and a love for science and education.

MY TEACHING STYLE

For TpT I have created an entire original curriculum over the past 12 years. I ditched the textbooks early in my career and opted for students to create their own textbooks with use of a learning journal. I began converting everything I was doing into a super charged form of PowerPoint. I have posted 20 different science units in Life, Earth, and Physical Science, and hundreds of smaller posting which are just small parts of these 20 units. The units use elaborate PowerPoint Presentations to deliver important notes, direct lab activities, provide follow-up questions, prompts for videos, and includes assessments, modified assessments, class notes, and answers to the assessments for support staff. My use of PowerPoint is high energy, with as much interaction between students and teacher as possible. I don't give the students anything for free, and they must engage to move one. Great thought questions, meaningful activities that reinforce instruction, tons of review opportunities, exciting video shorts, projects and much more are built right into the slideshow. I consider how students learn rather than just bullet listing facts. I use color coded text so students can focus on one point at a time. Everything is as visual as possible and presented in a step by step process. Most importantly, the activities and discussions that emerge from the slideshows are incredibly meaningful. Detailed unit notes with visuals follow each PowerPoint slideshow for students who require assistance and support staff. A bundled homework package and modified version also follows the slideshows for nightly review. I have 50,000 + slides over 20 full units of study that have been constantly improved every year. These units are the products of 10 years of trial in an incredibly busy and challenging classroom environment. I wouldn't post a unit that hasn't worked wonders for me and my students. Please contact me if you would like to sample some of my work. I will gladly send you a unit or more to view and use in your classroom. Thanks for your interest.
